During the last twenty years, there has been an impressive volume of literature written on the relations between demography and development. The increasing use of refined techniques to measure these relations just as the magic use of computer, does not necessarily make it automatically scientific in nature. On the contrary, as we shall try to show in this paper, the dominant theme of this literature is based on ideology and not on science; and this ideology corresponds to the requirements of a political plan of action which hinders the development of the Third World, especially that of tropical Africa.
